Barron Falls

Barron Falls was once a mighty 131m waterfall descending from the Atherton Tablelands towards the Barron Gorge and lowlands near Cairns. These days most of the falls was diverted for hydro…

Stoney Creek Falls

Stoney Creek Falls was a waterfall that we were under the impression was only viewable while riding the Kuranda Scenic Railway. Based on this assumption, that was the primary reason why Julie and…

Ellinjaa Falls

Ellinjaa Falls was one of the three waterfalls as part of the 17km Waterfall Circuit along Theresa Creek Road. Viewing this waterfall required us to go on a walk that took us 20 minutes away…

Zillie Falls

Zillie Falls was another of the trio of waterfalls on the 17km Waterfall Circuit on the looping Theresa Creek Rd. Julie and I saw this one right after we saw Ellinjaa Falls during…

Malanda Falls

Malanda Falls was a short but very wide waterfall that was essentially the last one out of ten that we visited in a day of self-touring the waterfall-laced Atherton Tablelands Region. Something…

Dinner Falls

Dinner Falls seemed to Julie and I to be a series of three main waterfalls on the Upper Barron River, each with their own distinctive character and shape. Some of these shapes were pretty unusual…

Pepina Falls

Pepina Falls (I’ve also seen it referred to as Papina Falls) was one of the more obscure waterfalls in the Atherton Tablelands area east of Ravenshoe (that’s “ravens hoe” not “raven shoe”). Julie…

Souita Falls

Millaa Millaa Falls

In our minds, Millaa Millaa Falls was the most beautiful and iconic waterfall of the waterfall-laden Atherton Tablelands region. What the falls had going for it was a lush rainforest setting…

Millstream Falls

Julie and I anticipated a visit to Millstream Falls largely because of the pre-trip notoriety as it was proclaimed to be Australia’s widest single-drop waterfall. And after seeing this waterfall…

Little Millstream Falls

Little Millstream Falls seemed to us to be a convergence of a handful of cascading waterfalls. I noticed at least a trio of segmented cascades during our visit in May 2008. I’m sure depending…

Mungalli Falls

Mungalli Falls was one of the prettier and taller waterfalls we had seen amongst the plethora of waterfalls found amidst the Atherton Tablelands near Millaa Millaa. This one dropped in three…

Nandroya Falls

Nandroya Falls was an attractive multi-tiered waterfall said to have a cumulative drop of 50m. It seemed to us to be one of those obscure waterfalls amongst the plethora of waterfalls…

Wallicher Falls and Tchupala Falls

Wallicher Falls and Tchupala Falls were a pair of waterfalls sharing the same trailhead off the Palmerston Highway not far from Nandroya Falls. I probably could have described each of these…

Josephine Falls

Josephine Falls was a multi-tiered cascade that seemed to be more of a swimming hole and waterslide than it was a waterfall attraction with scenic allure. Given the heat and humidity of the…
